Clinical Interest CT and MRI
Research Interest Dr. Bae is a radiologist and imaging scientist and has extensive experience and publications in contrast medium pharmacokinetics, functional and physiologic CT and MRI imaging, computer-aided diagnosis, and clinical translational and imaging biomarker research. He is also the Director of the Imaging Biomarker Lab in the Department of Radiology. In addition to clinical radiology practice in CT and MRI, Dr. Bae has an interest in applying computer and image processing technology to advance clinical translational and imaging biomarker research in a wide range of diseases including polycystic kidney disease, pulmonary embolism, emphysema, osteoarthritis, lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, Parkinson's disease, brain tumor perfusion, multiple sclerosis, spine, eye, and liver. Dr. Bae's Imaging Biomarker Lab specializes in discovery and development of morphological and functional imaging biomarkers from CT, clinical and high-field MR images for clinical translational applications. Dr. Bae has published over 470 papers, proceedings, and abstracts including over 170 peer-reviewed journal publications (majority of them as the first or corresponding author). He also has ten patents and is responsible for securing over $16 million in NIH grants to pursue research over the past 13 years.
